About Théophile Alexandre Steinlen (1859–1923) 
In 1881, Steinlen settled in Montmartre, the center of the art community in Paris, and began to frequent the literary cabaret known as Le Chat Noir.  Steinlen's fondness for animals, and in particular cats, was noted even as early as his schooldays, when he drew sketches of cats in the margins of his notebooks. Their charm, movement and character, as well as their symbolic properties, seemed to appeal to him.
